What better way to honor those who served our country in the military than a visual display? This morning, November 3rd, the Field of Honor comes to New Milford, and will remain on display until December 8th, on the lawn of the New Milford Historical Society facing the north end of the village green. It is quite a site to see.
In the midst of the Field of Honor sits our statue of Abraham Lincoln. There is a plaque in front of Mr. Lincoln that speaks volumes even today. The Field of Honor may be for more recent veterans, however it should also serve as a reminder of how division can topple a country and for those who fought during the early years of our nation. It just struck me as being very appropriate.
Take a moment and walk through the Field of Honor in New Milford, CT. A fitting tribute just in time for Veterans Day!
Thank you to the Kiwanis Club of Greater Danbury, to Big Y, to the Roger Sherman Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, to the New Milford Historical Society, to all those who purchased flags to honor a veteran and to Linda Thomas for her vision and dedication to this very worthwhile project!
